Fahadh Faasil’s latest Netflix release Irul is all the internet can talk about today. It revolves around a couple who stops at a house after getting stranded in the rain, and comes across a serial killer. Seems simple? Well, this Malayalam film is winning hearts with not just its plot twists but also the performances.
Here are 5 reasons why the internet is currently obsessed with Irul:
1. This single shot which is so beautiful to watch
The movie is beautifully shot and every single frame leaves you in awe. Visually, the movie is a masterpiece.
This 6-minute long single-shot scene from Irul is mindfucking. Cinematographer Jomon T John’s work is seamless and Fahadh Faasil, Soubin and Darshana were awesome as usual. 😍😲🖤 pic.twitter.com/76tvlxjCJZ— Chay (@illusionistChai) April 2, 2021
Damn! #Irul is really spooky. I had a lot of thoughts running around my head while watching it. Brilliant cinematography! Exceptional indeed. pic.twitter.com/kKofY0WfsB— Arya (@RantingDosa) April 2, 2021
2. The fact that this is the second Fahadh film to be shot completely in the pandemic.
Predominantly shot in a huge haunting mansion, this thriller doesn’t need or show the outside world. Which adds to its escape-room charm.
3. Fahadh Faasil is brilliant, no matter where the storyline goes.
Fahadh is a manipulative and charming serial killer that we can’t help but be enamoured with. He is a delight to watch and his performance leaves you stunned, as always.
I finished watching Irul and I can’t say I am surprised at the absolute stellar performances by all three. I am not going to lie the plot was kind of underwhelming but the cinematography and acting compensated tenfold. Fahad is seriously on a league of his own as an actor😍😍 pic.twitter.com/qtbU3YfSYp— Sharon (@steamysharon) April 2, 2021

Simple yet effective plot line with mesmerising performances of #FahadhFaasil, #soubinshahir & @darshanarajend, succeed in carrying the suspense till the end and also keeps us captivated throughout.
I define it as – “An Engaging Slow Burner”.

Easy and fun to watch, Irul delivers quite a lot in just one and a half hour.
